Diane M. Deux Esprits

A biographical docu-short about a First Nation Canadian.
3/5

Review

Mihaly Szabados’s documentary is a short yet captivating glimpse into the life of a French Canadian woman with indigenous roots. The film begins by exploring Diane Montreuil’s upbringing, which despite her native heritage, was steeped in Catholicism. From there, we are introduced to a fascinating array of indigenous artifacts and artistry which allows for a rich insight into her culture.

The use of the French language without English subtitles may pose a barrier for non-French speakers, but the expressive nature of Diane and the rich visuals on screen help to bridge the gap. Szabados’s low-budget approach feels raw and personal, capturing intimate moments of Diane’s life which showcase her authenticity and charm.

Despite its short runtime, the documentary offers insightful and educational moments which make it an engaging watch. Diane Montreuil’s life’s journey is significant not only to the indigenous population, but for anyone interested in exploring different cultures. Mihaly Szabados’s documentary presents a fresh and unique perspective on cultural exchange and spirituality, making this a film that you won’t want to miss.
